Mim Eichler Rivas

Raised in the iconoclastic East Tennessee town of Oak Ridge (AKA The Secret City), a merger of nuclear physicists, artsy bohemians and hillbillies. Went to Sarah Lawrence College to pursue an acting career and studied writing with E.L. Doctorow. Came to the West Coast and got a job in the shoe business, a misspelling because I actually wanted to be in show business. Have worked as an actress and VoiceOver artist. Have written fiction and am working on a screen adaptation of my 2005 bestselling BEAUTIFUL JIM KEY: The Lost History of a Horse and a Man Who Changed the World. As a co-author and ghostwriter, I've collaborated on well over three dozen works of nonfiction including national bestsellers and critically acclaimed books such as THE PURSUIT OF HAPPYNESS with Chris Gardner (with a story made into a feature film starring Will Smith), FINDING FISH with Antwone Fisher (also a feature film) and BECOMING DR. Q with Alfredo Quinones Hinojosa (also in development as a feature film). Collaboration on deck for 2021 includes the release of the audio book for BEAUTIFUL JIM KEY (as read by author) books are PERMISSION TO DREAM with Chris Gardner *April 21*, FLAMIN' HOT CHEETOS with Richard Montanez June 2021, GO WHERE THERE IS NO PATH with Christopher Gray August 2021 . and PIGLET: The Unexpected Story of a Deaf Blind Pink Puppy and His Family (August 2021).
